    Why so slow, bruh?

    The new Spider-Man game for the PlayStation 4 has been incredibly well received, winning our Game of the Show gong by a country mile.

  • E3 2017 Spider-Man Will Have Alternate Outfits on PS4


    This is probably the most obvious announcement of E3 2017, but Spider-Man will be able to unlock different outfits in the new PlayStation 4 game.

  • E3 2017 Insomniac's Programmed Spider-Man So You Can't Kill

  • News Marvel: We Want Spider-Man PS4 to Be Game of the Year

    Great power, great responsibility

    It's worth reiterating that Marvel's approach to games is changing.
